For new parents naming their baby, there are countless choices available. Some already have a name in mind, while others spend ages poring over books and websites looking for that one perfect name for their child. There’s a huge amount of choice out there, with thousands upon thousands of names to choose from. There are loads of common names we’ve all heard time and time again, but what about the less common ones? What are some of the more unconventional names that babies have been given?

Some girls are named Merci, which is thank you in French. It’d be interesting to see if there were some French kids named Thanks.

While Hallelujah is something you say when worshipping or rejoicing, it also happens to be a girl’s name.
